Gonzalo:Last April I had the chance to attend a Buddhist Monk Ordination in Eastern Thailand, and during the 2 days that the ceremony lasted I tried to capture all the different stages of the ritual to portray it in a comprehensive way. All the images were taken with the GH3 and the Nocticron without any ND filter, which made it difficult to use the lens wide open under such sunny tropical skies. You can see (and read) the full story here:

New screw-in filter holder for Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 PRO

Taiwanese company STC is working with Olympus Taiwan to design a screw-in filter holder for Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 PRO. The holder takes an 105mm filter. Currently their CPL shows slight vignetting, but the newly designed ND filter could possibly avoid that. They’re still not sure if they should make an ND4, ND8, ND16…maybe your readers can help advise on this 😉 They also say it’s possible (and easier) to make one for Pana 7-14mm. Based on the comments, this will be available at the end of next month at least in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Not sure if it will be available elsewhere, though. See here:
